    Hi @poppy123456, thank you for your message but I have rare medical condition none of above would apply for me. I underwent few extraction of teeth and I was hopping for different support for example organisation providing volunteer who could help for example  with shopping for few days etc.

    A needs assessment will cover lots of areas if help is needed on a long term basis and this is where you need to start.

    If it's just short term help then i don't know of any organisations that would provide this service free of charge. You could search your local area to see what's available but you'll most likely have to pay for this service yourself.

    @iza Hello and welcome to the community, I too am a single mum and know how difficult it can be bringing up a child as a disabled mum. We tend to have to rely on help from friends or family. Like other have short term help isnt easy to come by but please do the needs assessment as suggested as they can sign post you to relevant help. Thed other suiggestion could be to speak to social services or maybe your GP who could offer sugesstions.
